Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.”
Jesus, (John 6:35)
Throughout all cultures, bread has been the basic, sustaining food that represents the satisfaction of hunger. Whether tortillas, a loaf of sandwich bread, pita, nun or others, bread is a basic of life.
Jesus called himself the bread of life—and he said He would satisfy our hunger.
Do you hunger for love? For finding purpose in the midst of your every day circumstances of life? For forgiveness? For belonging? For healing?
Jesus is our bread of life. But what is also mind blowing, is that when our own hearts have been filled by His love, power, personal presence, He fills us with Himself and we become and offering of His attributes of filling hunger for others. We are blessed by His adoption, redemption, coming into our lives.
We then see that our brokenness is satisfied by His presence in our lives.
Then, our lives become a sacrifice, breaking open for the sake of others who are hungry for Him. We are given to the world, as He was, to bring His satisfaction to those who also hunger and thirst.
My friend, Glenn Packiam, has written a book that will refresh your understanding about how Christ comes to you to satisfy your life, to validate your story and to show you how to become His life and light to those He brings your way.
